Discounted tickets available for over 75 Chicago shows!

Our fanz know Chicago is the comedy capital of the US, but a lot of people say it’s also the best American city for live theatre of all sorts. We’re proud to be part of the larger community of world-class performing artists that live and work here and we’re happy to support the first-ever Chicago Theatre Week, February 12-17, 2013. That week, audiences will have the chance to sample over 75 different theatre productions across the city at reduced prices. We think it’s a great reason for our out-of-town friends to plan a trip to the Windy City and for local residents to clear their schedules and sample the variety of live shows here in our city.  (Including a trip to ComedySportz, we modestly suggest).

For this special week, participating theaters – including ComedySportz – are offering a limited number of tickets for either $15 or $30 per person. ComedySportz tickets are available for $15.00 online through Ticketmaster or through our box office by calling 773-549-8080.with the code THWEEK. The number available at this low price is strictly limited, so we recommend calling as soon as possible. The complete list of participating theaters and shows is online at and information on ordering tickets for other theaters is provided there as well.

During the course of the week, there will be special events at participating theatres, including enrichment activities such as talk backs with artists. The most current listing of events and offers is available at .

The timing of Chicago Theatre Week couldn’t be better. The dates include Valentine’s Day on February 14th – a wonderful day to experience something as special as live theater together. (We’ll have some special Valentine’s Day activities at ComedySportz as well.). And, the week leads up to President’s Day on Monday, February 18th – giving an extra day of travel time for out-of-town visitors to get back home after taking in a week of live Chicago theater and comedy!

Chicago Theatre Week is sponsored by the League of Chicago Theatre and Choose Chicago, the official agency for marketing Chicago to the world as a travel destination.  ComedySportz is a proud member of both organizations and is thrilled to support this exciting event.  For visitors and residents alike, this will be a great week to be in Chicago.




Limited Time Special Offer Invites Fans to see ComedySportz at 10 PM Plus One of Our Midnight Shows for $22!*

This weekend, and for the next three weekends after that, fans can see our 10PM shows on Friday and Saturday plus our midnight shows for just $22*. This gives all a great chance to check out our sensational new uncensored late night talk show, Talk Hard, hosted by Jamie Campbell and Kevin Pomeroy.

Each week, there’s a topical monologue, remote video segments, off-the-wall characters and bizarre special guests. The Chicago Reader calls it “a showcase to watch.” This cutting edge show is open to guests of all shapes and sizes over the age of 18.

Saturday midnights are home to The Hot Karl – a strictly adult improv show that has been a hit since 1999. Jack Helbig of The Chicago Reader put it this way: “Every Saturday at midnight, “The Hot Karl” folks start their gig by announcing that they're going to create the foulest, most disgusting fully improvised show in Chicago. Then they do it…. The material was very funny and very blue… the grosser the players got, the more expertly they improvised.”

The Hot Karl may offend, but only in those rare moments when you’re not laughing hysterically.  Adults 18+ only.


Both shows make a great nightcap to our main stage show, ComedySportz. Our 10 PM ComedySportz shows, like our earlier performances, are clean and smart improv comedy that everyone can enjoy. Enjoy ninety minutes of short scenes, songs & games based on your suggestions and performed by two teams of improvisers battling for your approval to win their competitive comedy match. Then be ready for a walk on the wilder side with one of our midnight shows.


Tickets for our Late Night Double Feature Special can be reserved by calling 773-549-8080 and giving the code DOUBLE. *Offer good for shows performed through February 9, 2013.

Regular price for Talk Hard orThe Hot Karl is $10.
